Tips for Home-based businesses

This week is designated as National Small Business Week. Many people operate businesses from home so here are a few tips to help you stay focused while facing the distractions at home:
  1. Have a separate business phone line. Many use a cell number. This will help you shut off your business when it's time to focus on home.
  2. Don't mix the money. Have a separate checking account for your business. This will help you track your expenses more easily and big a big help at tax time. You'll also have a better idea of how your business is doing financially. 
  3. Designate specific work hours. Sometimes when working from home you might buy into the notion of being able to multi-task. I.E. I'll just do a few loads of laundry today while I'm calling prospective customers. Wrong! It never works out to anyone's benefit when you try this. Trust me. I've tried! Block off chunks of time on your calendar that will be for your business and then stick to it. Having it scheduled will help you stay focused and less tempted to multi-task.
Workin' from home,
